The winter storm that’s affecting most of Wyoming is not an equal-opportunity employer.

It’s quite discriminatory, in fact.  

Looking at photos and videos posted on Facebook, particularly on our favorite page “Wyoming Through The Lens“, you see a remarkable difference in how the storm is impacting different areas of the state.

Up here in Hulett, the sun is peaking through the clouds and the high temperature should be around 50 degrees.

Down in Superior, Wyoming, a couple Facebook videos posted by Norbert Green show an entirely different picture.

Something that, perhaps, explorer Earnest Shackleton might have experienced when he was stuck in Antarctica.

Meanwhile in Lander, as in other parts of the state, power is down and the snow is heavy.

Same with Douglas where there are reports of many downed trees.

While over in Jackson, the storm produced a picture-perfect Christmas wonderland.

Contrast that to Rock Springs where the movie ‘The Shining’ comes to mind.

And just remember, close your windows:

That’s because the wind has been something else today. Check out these wind speeds:
